On The First Day Of This Year - Poem by RIC BASTASA

new year.
the happy faces
in those
pictures in

i hope
are not pretty lies.
most of the time
they are

on the first day of
this year
of the water dragon

we shall play a
new game
breathing fire

growing wood on
believing in
what is not credible

on the first hour
of this year
or even the hour before
you shall begin
disliking me

every part of me
but as a compromise
i will just
be sleeping.
